The Rt. Rev. Daniel J. Sparks made an episcopal visit on February 19, 2023 to St. Bede’s Anglican Church in Tucson, Arizona. He ordained the Rev. Richard Ball as presbyter. The new presbyter anticipates future ministry at St. Bede’s.
This was the first episcopal visit for the congregation since the death the Rt. Rev. George Conner, who previously had episcopal oversight.
The service of Holy Communion and ordination was followed by lunch in the parish hall. There was also a Question & Answer session with the bishop.
